EASY TOMATO BASIL SOUP (Serve Hot or Cold)

 
*     2 c. good quality tomato basil spaghetti sauce in a jar (smooth or chunky
       according to your preference of texture)
 
*     2 c. half & half (can use lite)
 
*     2  fresh basil leaves finely chopped - or - 1/2 tsp. dried basil
 
*     1/4 c. butter
 
*     salt & pepper to taste
 
Mix all ingredients together and heat just until butter is melted.  Let stand a minimum of 30 minutes for flavors to blend.  Can be refrigerated for 2-3 days (flavors continue to blend).  When ready to serve, heat to a slow simmer for 3 minutes and serve or can be served chilled.  This is NOT a low calorie soup - just a great soup when you want to splurge!
